Suspension of Disbelief

Posted on 04. May, 2010 by in News

Jimmy Webb has made the third ascent of Suspension of Disbelief in Eldorado Canyon, in one day, calling it V13. Dave Graham did the FA in 2005 in two days and graded it V13. It took Daniel Woods around 7 days or so to make the second ascent, and he upgraded it to V14.

    Dave Graham makes some interesting comments about the boulder and some of the strong new generation starting at 26:28 in this interview http://vimeo.com/6048642. The whole thing is worth watching, too.

    Wow, very interesting news on a lot of levels given the difficulties Daniel and Paul have had with that boulder.

    Nice to see that Jimmy is crushing it out west. Representing how strong climbers in the southeast are!!!! Great job J Webb.

    Jamie – does this make you re-visit your recent (and I’m over-simplifying here) perspective that: A) Daniel is crushing and so we should trust his ability to apply grades and B) Paul is not-so-crushing so we should be a bit more tentative in accepting his grading? Or does it not really change anything?

    I sure hope he and the crew got the permit from OSMP and also picked up and packed out the toprope that was left there from the last attempts…

    Way to go tho!

    Was the first ascent done with a top-rop? Im not familiar with the height of the boulder problem or landing, but is a top-rop required? Maybe this is the reason for such a fast ascent?
    Anyone have insight to this?

  7. […] B3Bouldering reports that Jimmy Webb has made a quick 1 day ascent of Suspension Of Disbelief (V13) in Eldorado Canyon, CO for the problem’s 3rd ascent.  First done by Dave Graham in 2005, Suspension only saw a second ascent after several days of work by Daniel Woods. […]

    Props to Carlo for also sending this rig! I believe he claimed the V13 grade as well.

    Jamie, do you know of any 1 move problems, either static or dymanic that the single move is said to be V13? Also, do any of the established V14-16 problems, have moves that would rate V13 by theirself?

    Seems that the highend problems just have more back to back moves approaching the V13 level…

    Awesome to hear that Jimmy Webb added suspension of disbelief to his tick list. I sense many more amazing Colorado ascents coming his way,

    Jimmy did it without a toprope

    the “toprope” left there is mine. but it is not for climbing. it was intended to be a noose for killing this and all other hard climbs by hanging. suspension merely untied the knot to save its life.

    i pray that other hard climbs will not be so lucky, as it will rip the joy out of my labor

  13. […] Vor dem Hintergrund von Daniel Woods Erstbegehung und Bewertung “The Game (V16)“, ist doch diese Nachricht ganz interessant: “Jimmy Webb has made the third ascent of Suspension of Disbelief in Eldorado Canyon, in one day, calling it V13.
